i got the elm 327 scanner I mentioned and linked to above and it does not work with either of my vehicles...
I have 2 fords and these clone scanners are known to be highly unreliable with fords.
on the torque wiki for adapters they mention this adapter:
PLX Kiwi Bluetooth - Connect your Droid mobile device to your car's OBD2 OBDII Port
has anyone used this with success...i wonder if it would be any better than the cheap elm 327 i have?
it's the next cheapest adapter and it's gonna cost around $100 after shipping
